What we do / Stories of Strength

Stories of Strength

These are our Stories of Strength.

They are stories told by our wounded veterans and the loved ones who support them.

They are stories that demonstrate the strength it takes to live a life beyond injury.

They are stories too of the men and women at Help for Heroes who help our wounded find the strength they need to live the lives they deserve.

Together, we will give strength to those who gave for us.

 

Simon's Story 

“In the military you’re trained never to show weakness and for a long time I couldn’t admit I needed help. But I found the inner strength to pick up the phone and ask for support.”

 

 

Mark's story

“I’ve had to overcome a lot of personal stuff and it’s made me more resilient. Now I feel both physically and mentally strong, I have a career I love and I’ve got my life back. I don’t believe there’s anything I can’t do!”

 

 

“I’m so proud Mark has found strength through sport to overcome his daily challenges. He’s a fighter and he never gives up.”
